The 8U- Court has passed OH the one question and the people on tho other, ahd if the vacillating secretary could be further discredited than he has been already, his New York utterances would serve the turn, Carlisle as a free silver coinage advocate had the respect of those who differed from him. As & turncoat ih office, and as a juggler with official statistics to cover up the fact that lack of revenue is the main cause of our financial troubles, he has -ceased to receive any considerable at* 1 tention. Senator Sherman snuffed out his New York speech in one sentence. WM. O. PAYNE urged the boys in Nevada to quit Halowe'en mischief and do some act of kindness and generosity. The boys accordingly took three cords of Bro. Payne's wood and gave it to various poor families in the town. The Capital is responsible for this report. PRESIDENT HARRISON has begun a series of articles in the Ladies' Home Journal under the general title "This Government of Ours." They are to be addressed to the ladies with a View of aiding them in the task of rearing the rising generation to an understanding of the duties of citizenship. The prefatory chapter is devoted in the main to the importance of encouraging a respect for law. It is exceedingly readable, written in the style which made the president's short speeches so popular, and in it is stated with peculiar aptness and force the need in a popular government of respect for law— not -merely for the statutes which repress •or punish actual crime, but for the jninor statutes which forbid acts not morally wrong, hut acts which the common welfare seems to require, of which " keep off the grass" is- an illustration. IN a late issue of the State Leader the incorporation of a co-operative publishing company is reported, with H. G. Gue of Des Moines as president. Among the directors appears the name of the editor of the THE UPPER DES MOINES. He desires to state that he knows nothing of any such company, . has nothing to do with its management, and is in no way connected with it. THE commissioners have completed the new code for Iowa and will have it ready for the legislature when the session opens. It is said that so many and such radical changes have been made that the whole time of the legislature --will he taken up by it, and that already an extra session next year is contemplated. Either the present session will he prolonged into the summer op an extra session will be called. The exact nature of the changes in the code is not made public, but they are sufficient to insure'the presence of a big lobby of interested parties all- winder. An idea prevails that the whole matter "will be tu.rned over to an extra session to be called a year from now. iz8 a fflddifled lotm of fjublic cbfltrdl as ftfi .experiment, such fdf trieil a year &g& s it'will start t6MtjUtt}fi&, liB(§ that Will fgfid to tafigible, We modestly suggest this tb Senator Funk's ful consideration, THE LiveFifiore Gazette sagely suggests that if the Iowa State baHd baft- fidt wake expenses it hang up its drum ahd go to husking corfi.

THE coming Iowa legislature will have 78 republican to 22 democrats in the lower house, The Capital says this is two less majority than the republic- 'ana had in the Twenty-fifth assembly. ID the recent election the democrats lost seven seats held before, and the republicans eight, On joint ballot the republicans have 92 majority, IN Tama county the prohibitionist Candidate for the legislature polled 174 jpfces and the democratic candidate beat flje.republioan by 24 votes, If liquor legislation _ should he settled by one vote,' as js likely, the practical putcome o| impractical politics would be vividly Illustrated.

Senator Funk has a historical reminiscence connected with it: The Sioux Rapids Press quotes our comments upon the old press now in its office, which did service for the Beacon 20 years ago, and expresses a desire to know the history of the same. Some years since we put in a little time in the endeavor to trace its record back to the beginning, but with little satisfaction. R. B. Warren of THE UPPEK DES MOINES says the press was brought to Algona in I860, by Asa C. Call, and it was in use in the office of the pioneer paper at that place until it was removed to Spirit Lake in the fall of 1871. Judge Call made' his purchase of , Stillson Hutchins of Des Moines, where the press was in service before its journey to Algona. We wrote Mr. Hutchins as to its early history, but he seemed uninformed. Tradition says it was one of the first printing presses to cross the Mississippi into Iowa, and that it was for years used at Burlington. It'cannot be less than 60 years old and is probably older than that. When it the Beacon its bed was considerably hollowed in the center by use and abuse. Along in 1881, we believe, Geo,.Chase of Milford "took the kinks out," and it was then as goocj as new. '• : -.•..-, ' . .* * * '•-'".Lafe Young adds a chapter to the Dolliyer wedding • report: Congressman Dolliver, who has himself led many a band of jokers in their pranks with newly wedded couples at Fort Dodge, thought to escape the avenging hand by announcing or having it announced that himself and bride would leave Fort Dodge for Washington via Chicago on Friday night, intending all the while to leave' at midnight Thursday night, and. thus evade the friends whom he had played wedding jokes upon in years past. But George Roberts and the other "boys" learned his true program in time to get a hundred pounds of rice and dozens of old shoes. The populace went to the train. The rice adorned and beautified the stateroom in.the sleeper and large placards announced that " this is Congressman Dolliver and his bride on their way to Washington," etc. Employes of the Pullman car were heavily bribed to exhibit all kinds of placards in Chicago, with the statement that the cards had been on the car all night, Altogether it was one continued round of pleasure in Fort Dodge "the night Dolliver was married," _ _ „ _.l doffiglete, TB6 Sttfcsi*rlpti6n p«ee is $1 &ma?.

These have an introduction and notes by Mr, Stevenson's stepson, Lloyd Osbourne, The letters have the charm that attaches to everything the author wrote, and they give a vivid picture of the romantic phases of his life in Samoa. The Christmas Century is notable both pictorlally and for its literature. Perhaps the most striking and novel illustrations are those by Tissot from his well known series, " Tho Life of Christ," which have been seen only in ^Paris. but which may latter be placed on exhibition in the United States. The article on this extraordinary work is written by Miss Edith Coues.

It yields not only a much more plentiful good living than the average town or city man enjoys, but it gives a surplus and a competency if the man has tolerable faculty for managing. Run over the list of merchants, grocers, mechanics, professional men of all sorts, officials, et'al. you have known in any town where you have lived 80 or 40 years, and the number of these who have made a fortune or laid up funds enough to yield a a fixed revenue, is but a small per cent, of the farmers who have become well off, got fore-handed enough to retire from work, come to town to live lives of leisure. The contrast is very glaring. You have only to drive out half a day in any direction into the country to come across dozens, scores and hundreds of farmers who have as good houses as the best in the towns, are out of debt, have bank accounts, loan money, can show mortgages, have hogs and cattle galore, are lords of acres, quarter sections, half and whole sections, have gardens, orchards, groves, lawns, flower beds, ice houses, wood piles, postofflce boxes by the roadside, daily papers, top buggies, surreys, spanking teams to whirl them to town at an 8 or 10 mile per hour gait—absolutely independent, rich. They have to solicit nobody; they are solicited by tradesmen, by politicians, by charity, by public enterprises, and can say yes or no as suits them. They are their own bosses, and can do as they please. If stock or cereals do not bear a good price, they can store their products for a rising market. The buyer runs after them. The mechanic, tradesman, politician, professional man is dependent as a rule, must solicit and advertise and offer inducements and be a magnet to draw custom, but the farmer knows that the world must come to him, for his occupation is the great primary industry. He raises the wool and cotton to clothe mankind, the food to stop their mouths and the wood to keep them warm, "Everybody could get rich were it not for expenses, The city man is as leaky as a sieve. He has to buy everything—clothes, food, fuel, and it is these daily fugitive nickels, dimes, quarters, halves, the many miokels that make the muckle. This bunch of celery is a nickel, two boxes of berries for a quarter, this butter SO cents a pound, this basket of peaches 25 cents and so on thro 1 the list. Every day a market basket on his arm, leaking small change for the kitchen. If he wants potatoes, apples, tur- Men making farms, getlfeg out of debt and forehanded have to cultivate the dailaf Instinct, T"he other Wait will Itt time cdfte hero, as itt England, in Prance, In tloilahd, etc., where fatms are pic'tttfesque f pictorial as well as good investments for Income.

Beauty enhances the Value of real estate. Give us time. Washington county will equal any rural region abroad, For the tendency here, as in foreign parts, will be to form large estates, Rich farmers will add farm to farm, and two centuries from now no doubt we'll have a landed gentry minus the title, as in England, and then here as there the country will take on park- aspects. "However, we meatt to let others do the farming. We'd rather run the Press than a farm, tho' we were once a.farmer's boy and youth, since it suits us better. But there are more ducats in farming than In Pressing. Farming was the first business according to Genesis, tho' the archeologists say hunting and fishing preceded agriculture as the pursuits of wild men, but the cultivation of the land first tamed mankind, as it was the cultivation of human nature, also, and the first act that men learned unless it was the rude art of war." IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. of nips, berries, he must pull his purse—the farmer pulls 'em from the ground, from the tree or vine at practically no cost at all. He saves his coin, keeps his wad, and deposits them in an old stocking or in bank. His garden is growing, his fruit is ripening, his bread t stutfs coming on while he is asleep or doing larger things. All this vast mass of vegetables, fruits, etc., to get which depletes the town man, are mere asides or incidents to the farmer, and he can't help getting rich in a quarter of a century if he be prudent and any manager at.aU, "Themilk you buy in town runs jnto money fast, the strawberry season bank' runts you, the yearly butter bill would pay many a man's taxes, the coal and wood bill takes a pile of money, the farmer has dead trees enough in his wind break to warm his house, and more wood goes to waste than into his stoves.

We glean from the LuVerne News. Senator Funk has taken E. G. Blnck- ert into partnership again on the Beacon—the London Times of north Iowa weeklies. Barney Devine Jr. was thrown from his horse last Sunday morning and somewhat bruised up in a barb wire fence near Liyermore. Swea City Herald: Faithfulness is not always rewarded, if it was Swea township would now be the home of a county supervisor. B. F. and Mrs. Smith have been in Puokwanka, Wis., attending the funeral of Mrs. Smith's father. He, was the oldest pioneer in the town. Garner Signal: Rev.

We are now prepared to announce that Kossuth is in the race for longevity. We have almost as old as the oldest, and lots of people who have passed their three score and ten in hale, hearty and vigorous old age. And the best of it is the old are all early settlers. They have gone through thirty and forty years of pioneering it here in the county and still have bright eyes, healthy complexions and can get about nearly as well as ever. Mrs. Roxana Hudson of Bancroft heads the list. She will be 09 at her next birthday, which comes July 4. She is our popular cigar man's grandmother and came to Kossuth nearly 30 years ago, living in Algona and south of Bancroft. Of late years she has been in the central part of the state, but a year ago returned to Bancroft. She lives a half a mile away from the business center and last fall walked in regularly, did her shopping and walked back. She is in vigorous health, and excepting failing eye sight, is good for many years. Next in line comes John Heckart at 89. He also is an old settler, one of Algona's first, and is still seen daily upon the streets^ Michael Riebhoff, Betsy Norton and M. Bahr follow at 88. The two former belong to the first settlers, Mr. Reibhoff still living on his original claim on the Black Cat in Union township, in excellent health, and Mrs. Norton making her home with her daughter, 'Mrs. Robt. Henderson, in Riverdale, also vigorous and good for many years. The county has 39 people who have reached the 80 year line. Of these the oldest is a woman, and of these 20 are women to 19men, a favorable showing for longevity in the weaker sex. Among the 39 there are three families. Mr. and Mrs. John Heckart lead, he 89 and she 82. Mr. and Mrs. Bahr of Plum Creek township are second, he 88 and she 80. In Whittemore Chas. Able is 83 and Eliza Able 81.
